Apres Tout

Rory and Caroline Macrae have worked in the luxury Hotel barge cruise industry in France for over 20 years. They bought the 'Apres Tout' a six passenger French canal/river barge in 2011 and are proud to be running their own business after all these years – hence the name ‘Apres Tout’ which means in French – after all! Fully conscious that the barge is one of the most important elements of your dream cruise vacation, you will be taken care of with the utmost care. Everything will be prepared for you to ensure an unbelievable cruise experience aboard Apres Tout.

While cruising on Apres Tout enjoy your time lounging on a beautiful 360° teak deck that measures 677 square feet.

There are 6 new all-terrain bikes with 21 gears and suspension system for use.

Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the onboard bicycles as often as they like. Most People choose to disembark the barge at a lock to visit local villages, then return to the canal and meet the barge later. All our tours reflect the very best of fine food and wines, cultural activities, and the immense pleasure of sailing through beautiful scenery.

As Apres Tout cruises along the historic canals and rivers of France, Southern Burgundy has been selected because of its wonderfully gourmet cuisine of charollais beef, escargot and ham which the region is specifically known for. Also for the rich red wines and huge variety of cheese that also come from this area.

Your hosts can shape your itinerary to appeal to whatever your interests are. Whether you would like to explore wine, history, cycling, golfing, art, antiques or just simply taking in the sights and shopping it can be done.
